CAYCE, South Carolina (WISTV - Columbia, SC)-

Seven hundred and twenty-six iPod touch media devices and 49 Hewlett-Packard laptop computers were among the items stolen from several freight trailers at an Amazon distribution center in Cayce, according to the Lexington County Sheriff's Department.

Officials say 20-year-old Anthony Cofield, Jr. turned himself in to the sheriff's department on arrest warrants charging him with two counts of grand larceny involving items worth more than $10,000.

According to arrest warrants, Cofield, a former Amazon employee, stole the iPods and laptops from two freight trailers he was entrusted to unload at the distribution center. The warrants go on to say that Cofield never unloaded trailers, but submitted false documents to the company claiming that he had unloaded them.

Both cases were reported to the sheriff's department and warrants were issued for Cofield's arrest.

In all, deputies say the stolen items totaled up to be worth around $160,000.

Cofield was eventually released from Lexington County Detention Center after posting a $50,000 bail.

@macmanmacman- good point! Lol.

He might be a newbie trying to do a large scale stealing. Wonder what movie inspired him? Hmmm... Didnít he even realize that he canít easily get away with it just like that? Well IF he has sold all of the stuffs which he stole (which is quite impossible) then there's a sure way for him to pay off his bail and penalties, haha! Laughing

That is why the justice system stinks in the U.S. right away he posts bail no good. Let him stay in jail for a few weeks to learn his lesson.
